I found a lot of people doing this challenge in HK and would like to have a go on it. People in London, or anywhere with a large bus network, can also do that too.
The rule is: Get on the first bus which arrives at the stop. Ride 10 stops, or to the terminus if there are fewer than 10 stops to the terminus. However, at a terminus, you may find that a few routes depart at the same time. You can have a choice among those routes.
Repeat this for 10 journeys.

But... why?
After a while you're going to go so far out that you're going to have to get the same 10 busses back. At least if you're not in London anyway...

Maybe not during Covid
Thinking to have a go on it after my last A level exam. My place has constantly low numbers of cases.
Our longest route, the E22A, is 60 km long. The longest route in Kowloon, the area I live in, is the 214 which is 20 km long. The shortest route is the K18 which is 1.3 km long.
There are some routes with plenty of stops, such as the 53 with 72 stops and the 973 with 57.
In terms of the routes I have taken before, the shortest I have taken was the 98 from Lei Tung to Aberdeen. It was also the cheapest bus I have ever taken (fare is £0.27)

I am in HK, so these journeys last between 3-5 hours in total.
I can also see which bus I am getting next in the challenge. In this case it will be the 37A.

My run on this challenge will happen after the A level exams. I want to try it out being a transport lover. Someone who did a run took 960, 961 and 962X back to back.
The run will begin at the Diamond Hill Station Bus Terminus.

I would like to have someone taking on a run with me at the same time in London. We are planning to start at 10:00 local time, which means I will mostly complete my rides before you do.
We can compare the total fares and distance travelled during our runs. My fare is very likely to be lower, as most of the buses in my place have fares less than £1 equivalent. The route I usually took to school has a fare of 65p equivalent for instance.
I will be tagging the buses I am taking for the run and where I will be getting off along the way, and you have to do it in the same way. An example is this:
Ride 1 KMB 84M Diamond Hill Station>A Kung Kok
